Instructions for preparation:

Step 1

While preparing the other ingredients, soak the tteok for about 10 minutes in cold water to cover. Dry off with paper towels.

Step 2 

Mix the garlic, soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil with the beef.

Step 3

A wok or skillet should be heated up very hot over high heat. Stir-fry the beef mixture for just one minute, or until it begins to faintly brown. If used, stir-fry cabbage, onion, and scallions for 2 to 3 minutes, or until crisp-tender.

Step 4

Combine gochujang in. Add around 13 cup water, the last teaspoon of sesame oil, sugar, and tteok. Add water a bit at a time as necessary while mixing and simmering until sauce is thick and tteok is mushy. Use sugar and gochujang to adjust the seasonings.

Cooking Tips:

Asian marketplaces carry tteok, commonly known as Korean rice cakes or dduk or toppoki. Long cylinders are the typical shape for this dish; before cooking, chop them in half crosswise. If using dried tteok, follow the cooking instructions on the package without soaking.
